A quality shaker has got to be a drummer or percussionist's best friend. They're small enough to fit in your pocket or a bag, weigh next to nothing and mean you can take percussion with you literally anywhere you go. Next time you're at a party and someone pulls out a guitar to look cool, pull out your egg-shaker, join in, and look even cooler!
It's plastic so its going to take more than it's fair share of use and abuse and will last for years and years. It's got the classic unmistakable egg-shaker sound so don't leave home without one
